Strengthen Your Core & Glutes With This Workout

It’s important not only to keep your body strong, but also to make it flexible and functional. Coordination, balance, and stability are the keys to so many physical activities and your glute/core muscles are the foundation of these attributes. One of the best ways to strengthen your glute and core is with resistance bands. By combining strength and balance exercises with them you become able to improve the overall efficiency and intensity of your workouts. Strong glutes and core are the key to everything because they improve your posture and make everyday activities so much easier. By working these areas you can also help prevent injuries to your lower back, hips, and knees just to name a few. If you don’t already have bands they are very inexpensive to buy online and they are a great staple to have. What follows is a great at-home workout, that you can very easily take on the road, during your next run or while traveling to make sure your body is always excelling.
